Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

December 28, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 12-28-2023 at 03:51 PM by Albert Finch


Many in the Body of Christ are exhausted and depleted after a long season of battle. Whatever the battle has been, the Lord has provided for you. In faith, receive the giant bottle of Samson water (Judges 15:19) from the Lord. He is supernaturally feeding and strengthening you with His power and might so that you will have unusual endurance and patience to stay in the battle as you continue to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom through your Christ calling and not give up. What was once difficult for you will feel light and easy, and you will do things you didn't think you could do as you experience a surge of strength that will cause you to soar.

He is breaking off the spirit of accusation and confusion that comes with weariness. Your mental sharpness is being restored and your physical body is coming into peaceful order – including sleep rhythms. Drink deep and be revived in your spirit, soul, and body. Remember that you are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms; you live in Him, the Prince of Peace!
